“THE SANDMAN” ………. Marcus Winter.
Over the past decade of work, Marcus Winter and his “Sand Art” has become established as a rising success story within the cultural and artistic landscape of Aotearoa.
A finalist in the arts category for the 2013 Nga Toa Whakaihuwaka (Maori of the Year Awards) and recipient of an ART Venture award in 2015, Winter’s work has achieved both critical and commercial success with placements in major advertising campaigns and events across the Pacific.
Winter’s artistic passion stems from his culture, country and desire to promote and preserve Te Ao Maori on an international scale. A largely self-taught artist, Winter has proved his adeptness across a range of mediums with his sand animations requiring a rare skill-set involving AV production, editing and script-writing.
